“Live on CNN, discussing the bombing attempt at Times Square in New York City. In their discussion, anchor Don Lemon asked former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes why the area was “blurred out on Google Earth because of this security alert.” Fuentes, ignorantly, said it was a security measure, basically he told the world that they think images from Google Earth are live,” reports Gawker.
Lemon: My question to Mr. Fuentes would be: what does that mean? What should we garner from this when this area is even blurred out on Google Earth because of this security alert?
Fuentes: I think they don’t want you to see exactly what kind of work they’re doing, and also they’re searching other parts of the area just to be safe.
